If you have epilepsy or know someone who has, this could help improve research in the field...
Women with epilepsy who are planning a pregnancy, currently pregnant or recently given birth are encouraged to join the National Pregnancy Register.
The Australian Pregnancy Register aims to assess the risks to babies exposed to anti-epileptic drugs and define safer treatment choices for women with epilepsy
Participation involves four short telephone interviews, during and after pregnancy, with well trained, experienced and friendly staff who ask details about health, epilepsy, medications and past medical and social history. To date 2500 women have participated.
